Twisted Duality

The United Kingdom of Twisted Duality is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Dave with an even hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 18.147 billion Twisted Dualityians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Davidian. The average income tax rate is 89.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Twisted Dualityian economy, worth a remarkable 1,580 trillion Pounds a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 87,078 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, annulments are on the rise as couples discover their ancestors were born in the same hospitals, treason is relative, and local executives are seen on the corner with cardboard signs reading "will oppress the masses for food". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Twisted Duality's national animal is the Duck Billed Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Twisted Duality is ranked 30,883rd in the world and 350th in the West Pacific for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 5,187.37 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
